    The rumble sound is probably a tire rubbing something. What size are your tires?

    Im running 33in maxxis bighorns an this might sound dumb but can I just by the drop bracket an use my coilovers I have now ? An how much lift they give if any an any good brands you know of ? An should I remove the diff drop or leave it?

    The max lift you can go without doing a dropbracket style lift is 3". Considering what you say you have installed. You probably are way beyond that. Your suspension is probably maxed out with No down travel left.

    WOW, do something cause you arent supposed to combine lifts like that. If you want to go over 3"s, you will either need to go with a 4.5" lift like RCD or a 6" lift.

    Wow! You're running a 3" lift and put a 2" spacer on top of it?.....your trucks suspension is not going to last! It's one or the other. Going cheap will hurt you in the long run......or short run in this situation.! I wish u luck man but take the spacer out for now!

    Might be a dumb question but what if I backd off my coilover nuts more towards the top a significant amount ... Won't that lower it an straighten things out kinda the same as If I just removed the spacer... My floor jack poopd on me -__- an I don't trust my back up jack to tear my whole front apart again!

    You need to take this rig to someone that knows these trucks and lifts and get it straightened out.

    I hope you were using jack stands the first time and not just the jack...:facepalm:

    You need to take that spacer out.

    As others have said - take out that top plate spacer, get the truck realigned, and good to go.
